    Received my 2M rounds Federal order yesterday the 25th. Was ordered on 8.28. That's okay. I have it. Was 40 cents/round, shipped plus state sales tax. Love it!

    30,000 bucks and the reserve wasn't met? I occasionally look, but the prices are absurd. Nope I'll roll my own until this nonsense ends.

    You spent $800,000 plus tax for two million rounds? Where are you going to store it? Did you get a loan from Hunter Biden or what?

    We'll just assume he bought one of the left over missile silos and will stash it there!

    M is the Roman numeral for 1,000. I’m assuming he bought 2,000 rounds.

    I've been looking all week for .357 Magnum ammo. One time I found some FMJ on one site that was in stock. I put 2 boxes in my cart and saw they also had some Hornady SD. So, I figured I'd get a couple boxes of that too. Clicked on it and it said unavailable? Heck, just said it was in stock. So then I figured I'd just get another box of fmj since I had the chance. Even though it was like $35 a box. So, I put another box in my cart. Came back unavailable! Heck! Now they have just one box left! Wow, changed that quick.

    I have been keeping an eye on GunBroker for the last few weeks. There is plenty ammo there. And plenty HIGH to boot. Heck, say what you like, but I've sold 3 lots of 500 rds of 9mm myself there. I made some crazy profits.

    I've been bidding on 357, but each time I get outbid. I just can't bring myself to pay $1 or so per round for fmj!! That's freaking crazy right? SD ammo yeah, but not fmj. I only wanted about 200 or maybe 300 rounds at most. I was lucky enough to get one box of fmj yesterday from my LGD at $29.99, still high but I had zero 357.
    This morning I started searching online again for some but no luck. I then go to GB and see what's about to end and hopefully win something. Everything in 200, 250 and 300 rounds is more that I'm willing to bid on. I see a 1000 rd deal that I've been watching all week about to expire in 16m. It's at $705. I go get me another cup of coffee and come back and I refresh my screen. 13m is left now. Heck, I don't need 1000 rounds but all in all it's a better deal that everything else. I put in a $800 bid. I will not counter if it's not enough or if someone outbids me at the last minute.
    I enter it and I'm now winning. I get up for another cup of coffee.

    So when I get back and refresh my screen I'm still winning! The time runs out and nobody countered. So I win it. $710 plus $40 shipped to my door. Dang expensive, but not as much as the smaller lots. Well, I am going to buy a Henry lever .357 and hope to get a Colt Python so at least I have plenty. For now. :joyful:

    Sounds as if we should ask President Trump to put an order out on the Ammo manufactures of
    America. Like Masks & ventilators Ammo is a vital component to our survival, maybe we
    should write Don Jr. he is a fellow gun nut.

    AMMO We want AMMO NOW! The next chant for the next Trump rally.

    This is not a good time to add another caliber to the mix. I was very reluctant to buy a 357 but I took and chance and bit the "bullet" haha. No looking back now. In the hunt for a Henry 357 lever now. Brass or blued, not sure. I want a 30-30, 44 mag and a Colt 45 but I should wait.

    I was going through my ammo closet this evening. I labeled all my ammo cans with the caliber and round count. I didn't know I had as much as I did. Nice surprise. I also found 1750 rounds of 9mm I didn't even know I had. Also found an extra 1000 rounds of 12g I didn't know I had ;)
    That's a nice find.

    They just opened a Sportsmans Warehouse near me in Charleston. It was their 2nd day open, so I thought I would take a peek and see if there were any primers or ammo. They had most calibers available, including 9mm and .357mag. The limit was 2 boxes per person/trip. I wanted .38 spl, but none available. I bought 2 boxes of Federal 9mm at $16.99/box, and one box of SIG high performance 9mm for my carry gun. I really didn't need the Federal 9mm because I load my own, but I felt obligated to leave with something. Grabbed a pair of Simms waders for fishing the streams. NO small pistol primers, 1 box of rifle primers left. The upside is there is another new retailer for the Charleston area sportsman.

    I got both my orders in and was organizing it all finally. Then I noticed that they sent me some 150gr instead of the 124gr. Anybody else get some too or just me?
